Because you have to insure it for around £2,000 a year and around £100 a year for tax too.

Y'all can get insurance for a bit less than 2k. It all depends on how much money you have, if you and your family are poor then don't, but if you can afford then do.

Not to mention having somewhere to park it and a use for it. Would you take it to university with you? Are you able to? Do you even know which university you're going to?

For a typical level of student income (from debt), it seems extravagant, even wasteful.

I bought my car before uni (insurance was only £800) and took it with me, however parking is a big issue.

I was able to use my car for my job so it paid off for me but unless you're going to actually use it (more than driving to the shops once a week) then you probably should spend the money elsewhere
